PoliBlog (TM): A Rough Draft of my Thoughts

  1. Why would criticism in the domestic press not be significant? The press rails at Ahmadinejad all the time, and it’s one of the reasons his political position is so weak, and was weakened further in last December’s elections. Or, more precisely, it is a symptom of his weakness. But its being a symptom doesn’t make it insignificant. The “conservative press” is essentially the mouthpiece of the clerical establishment, which now controls all levers of power other than the presidency.

  2. Point taken. I was basically wondering out loud if this particular bit of criticism was truly news-worthy.
